We were most unfortunate that a wedding was taking place during our stay and we were given a room in the annexe - the room was on the small side, the TV was the same as one we disposed of long since and the noise - dear me,it was awful. There were a herd of wilderbeast in the room above... More

Good: Staff friendly, very good breakfast, the 1960s-1970s music are good as well as the atmosphere. Budget especially when I extend one night I found out that they charge or receive about 1/2 of what I paid for booking.com. Bad: Whilst my 3 mobile sim card worked but my son's not. Wifi is not usable for the days we were... More

We stayed there whilst attending a local wedding . Unfortunately the although the sheets were clean the bed base covers were covered in stains, the bathroom vents were full of fluff and any surface above 5ft was covered in dust. General appearance was dated and in-need of a makeover. No wifi in bedrooms and TV's in bedrooms were dated (no... More

We stayed here for 2 nights DBB on 4th & 5th Sept 2014. The room in the outbuilding although fairly basic had been refurbished and was clean. The staff were extremely pleasant and could not be faulted. The breakfast was pretty standard but the evening meal was outstanding. The smoked salmon starter was generous and the breaded haddock was the... More

Just returned from 3 nights stay and this is a great base from which to explore the East Neuk of Fife On the plus side reception and dining room staff were excellent. Dinner on first night was pretty dire (substitute chef, apparently). Second and third night dinners were an improvement but couldn't rate it as v good. Had to ask... More

A short self-drive break was most relaxing and enjoyable. Setting is excellent with sea views. Our room (30) was at the top of the hotel and was a bit of a struggle with luggage but very helpful staff made light work of it for us. Food very good . Excellent center for touring East Neuk of Fife.

Very enjoyable two nights. Meals excellent. The family room was en-suite and very clean. The meals were excellent and had a good choice of wines by the glass. Some foreign guests arrived on the second night and were a bit boisterous, jumping onto the flat roof outside our rooms. When we brought this to the attention of the staff, it... More
